Xavi renews with Al Sadd... goodbye Barcelona?
Xavi Hernández will continue in Qatar until the end of 2020-21. Al Sadd confirmed the renewal of their manager, who in this way will not be appointed Barcelona boss n the summer.
The ex-player arrived at Al-Sadd in 2015-16, still as a player. After three years playing, he changed the pitch for the bench last summer, in his first experience as a manager.
"The goal is to rebuild the team for the upcoming competitions, both domestic and Asian", Xavi confessed in his first words after the renewal for the 2020-21 season.
"I am happy that the team is complete after the return of the rest of the players. Also to continue with Al Sadd. The goal will be to compete for all the titles", Xavi said.
It's worth remembering that Xavi has been linked with Barcelona in the last few months. Víctor Font, pre-candidate for the presidency of Barca, wants him to be his manager in elections which will take place precisely in 2021.
